Bacative

Album: Knowle West Boy (2008)
  • Tricky told The Sun July 4, 2008 about the Jamaican singer on this track and "Baligaga": "Rod is a friend of mine from New York. He used to do stuff just for fun, so the first time he ever recorded was with me. I moved to LA and he used to hang out with me and we did vocals, mucking around. Now he writes lyrics and records music."
  • Tricky said on his record label's website that the female voice on this song, "is this Spanish girl who I don't really know and who isn't really a singer."
  • 'Bacative' is Jamaican slang. According to Tricky, "if someone has your back, you've got 'bacative'."
